Ike's World Challenges New Release Blog Hop


Hello everyone, and welcome to the exciting NEW RELEASE BLOG HOP taking place over at Ike's World Challenges.  We are here to showcase the 12 new images from IKE'sART and here's the full view of all of them.

So unique, aren't they?!  Our leader is such a wonderful artist.  Each of us on the DT got to play with an image (or two).  Here is the incredible image I chose to work with...

As many of you know, I am a super fan of all things science fiction and fantasy.  High up on the list is vampires so I was thrilled to be able to play with this digi.

Here is my card and the details.  I hope I haven't forgotten anything...

Image Details: 
  • Vamp:  I have coloured this image with Copic markers:  I based the skin in N0 before adding E000.  I didn't want my vampire to look too human but I don't really have the right colours to make him extremely pale.  That is also why there isn't much shading.  Eye and lips: R11, R14, R17.  Hair: C3, C5, C7, Black. 
  • Lavender pearls--from Dollarama. 
Designer Paper:
  • The purple patterned paper on the front is from the DCWC Bella Rouge Stack paper pad.

Sentiment Details:

  • One I created for this occasion.  If there is interest I'll offer it up as a freebie.

 Paper Products: 

  • Card base and also used for embossed pieces: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, black.
  • Designer Papers:  The strip on the front and the one on the inside are also from the same DCWC paper pad.  
Embossing Folder:
  • Cricut, Paper Lace II embossing folder was used for the piece on the front and also the strip across the middle on the inside.  
Challenges I am hoping to enter...
I truly hope that you will hop in as my fellow DT members have created some awesome projects for you to see and hopefully inspire you, so without further ado - here is the Blog Hop list...

Since there is NO Ike's World Challenge this week, we are having a bit of fun with the Hop. Interested in winning one of the new releases ????  All you have to do is go around the Hop and leave everyone a comment and then head back over to Ike's World Challenges and leave a comment saying that you've done that.... simple eh ???!!

This Hop will run throughout this week, so you have plenty of time to enter. Make your way round and back to the main challenge blog by Midnight on Sunday, February 2nd, 2014.  Everyone who completes the hop will have their name thrown into a random draw.  Ike will let everyone know who the winner is at our next Challenge post, which will be on Tuesday, February 4th.

I hope we will see you participate and if you do, good luck in the draw!

Crafting Vicky said...

ohhhh so cool!!! I like this darker side of you :) That sentiment is just perfect!!!! The papers are also beautiful for this make.

I really love the coloring of him, not easy to make vampires... but the looks depends on the books/movies you see... they are not all pale and pasty looking! I think he's looking quite handsome :)
